Memories of a first reading of The Lord of the Rings

At the age of 14, reading The Lord of the Rings was a magical experience that transported my mind. This first reading coincided with a visit to Tongariro National Park and a chance walk to these falls that convinced me that New Zealand was Middle-earth.
I return as often as I can to visit Henneth Annun, remember my journey and be thankful for Tolkien and all he has bought to my life.
